Ask Approyo: Is SAP HANA 1.0 still supported?

February 3, 2020

Approyo CEO Chris Carter answers another Ask Approyo Question.
Someone asked us, Is SAP HANA 1.0 still supported?

Over the years, technology has reached a whole new level of innovation. With the Digital transformation of AI, Machine Learning and other technologies, It is important that every company keeps moving forward as well. With that being said, SAP decided to take a step forward back in 2016.

The Short Answer to this Question is No.

Back in 2016, SAP announced that SAP HANA 1.0 will no longer be supported after May 2021. The deadline was actually put in place to be May of 2019, but ended up being extended.

SAP HANA 1.0 is now considered outdated, and after 2021 there will not be available maintenance to this specific platform. On the bright side, there is now SAP HANA 2.0. So what makes SAP HANA 2.0 different than HANA 1.0?

As listed on the SAP blog:
"The SAP HANA 2.0 SPS 02 release, which delivers continuous innovation in several critical ways:

  • Increased automation and better business continuity with enhancements in workload management, system replication, dynamic tiering, and active/active read-enabled
  • Superior usability to improve ease of use, by simplifying data movement modeling, tenant management, encryption, and user group management
  • Enhanced SAP HANA analytics with Google TensorFlow integration for Machine Learning, and added improvements in Text analysis, Graph and Spatial
  • Expanded application development flexibility with new GO language driver, expanded SQL/SQL Script, and SAP HANA express edition support for Smart Data Integration."

If you are currently running your business in an SAP HANA 1.0 landscape, we suggest that you migrate to SAP HANA 2.0, sooner rather than later.
